USMMA Club Sports

The objective of the USMMA Club Sport program is to provide opportunites for Midshipmen to participate in sports programs not offered by the USMMA intercollegiate athletic or intramural programs and that contribute to the Midshipman's physical, mental, emotional. and social growth.  The Club Sports program supports the Regimental system and allows Midshipmen to gain experience in budget management.  The program insures that teams compete with proper equipment and provides safe transportation to games away from Kings Point.
